Forum: etree Subject: Re: Adding star ratings to the 'browse band' / 'info' page of a band?

I have the same uneasiness - for example merely see the comment and responses here:

Maybe it was troller(s) but still sadly illustrative.

An "if you like x, try y" type system would be more worth waiting for IMO.

BTW I don't think we'd cadge a 1-month implementation of anything, even not super fancy, for LMA ahead of the petabox, though?

Alright, here's what I'll do ... Once a week (or so) I'll pick one band to listen to for a couple of hours over the course of the week and on Saturday I'll write a short review that will try to fulfill certain criteria: potential category, sounds like, interesting covers, instruments, musicianship... I'm no musician, and I don't get out to see music that much any more. It will be one man's diplomatic, non-controversy seeking opinion... I'll post here, no responses necessary.

Hey I might get into this too! Sounds like a good idea...I'm going to find a band I've never heard of, download and listen to three of their shows and then post a review in the forums section. I'll do this every once in a while, although I can't promise it will happen every week.

I like this idea, and for now it's the easiest to implement. Scrolling down the home page is what I do all the time, looking for new threads and replies.

For when the thread has disappeared from page 1, it would be great if there was an easy way to search. A unique set of characters to denote this type of post? Such as @@@ or something else easy to notice. (my 2c)

Forum: etree Subject: Re: Band Summary Idea- tag with Band Review

I don't know if the special @@@ would get pulled up in a forum search here.

I recommend putting a post title tag like "Band Review", good example at

Deja Me? Deja You! I know ... but this time I promise to show something... a Fall/Winter project.
